integrity as it was indicated in the final document of the last NATO
Summit in Strasbourg (France) and Kehl (Germany), Azerbaijani Foreign
Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said.
I delivered to the ambassadors of NATO the position of Azerbaijan
on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict before the Moscow talks between the
Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan, the minister said.
The annual meeting NATO-Azerbaijan in the framework of the
Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP), which took place this
morning in Brussels on the level of The Foreign Ministry and the Law
Enforcement Agencies of Azerbaijan and the North Atlantic Council on
the Ambassadors level, focused on the regional cooperation between
the two sides in the fields of energy security, Afghanistan and ISAF.

with Azerbaijan within the IPAP, he added.

Government on military and civilian basis. Azerbaijan offers training

Baku and studies for the Afghani doctors in the Medical Academy for
the Ministry of Defense and educational assistance for the border
guards," Mammadyarov said.
